It seems as if Newsweek may have jumped the shark with its latest cover implying President Obama isn't just a supporter of gay marriage, but that he is actually gay himself.

The news-magazine, which hits stands today, is using the shock factor of labeling the straight, married, father-of-two President to draw attention to itself.


Last week, Obama touted his pro-gay marriage stance on his Twitter page and on his campaign website.



And of course, the cover article is written by Andrew Sullivan, the same writer who heavily questioned whether Trig Palin was really Sarah Palin's son. 

President Obama is taking full advantage of his "coming out" moment on gay marraige and will head to a swanky NYC fundraisier with gay singer Ricky Martin today.

Obama is heading to the Rubin Museum of Art in Chelsea for a $5,000-a-ticket fundraiser co-hosted by the LGBT Leadership Council and openly gay singer Ricky Martin.
